You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t posted any cookbook reviews on here lately. That’s no mistake, I was getting kind of tired of the same old same old, and let’s be honest a lot of you probably were too. However, I do have a book I’m going to review today and it’s called Green Smoothies: 66 Recipes & A 7-Day Detox Plan By Fern Green.
This smoothie book couldn’t have come at a better time for me or you because, like almost everyone else in the world, we’ve all set out to make January a fresh start which for a lot of people means eating healthy and exercising. And what could be more healthy than a smoothie?
My newest book obsession not only features tons of delicious and very, very easy smoothie recipes, but also recipes for juices, nut milks, and tonics. Great for cleanses or just as a regular addition to your healthy eating routine.
As you probably noticed in my last post, I kind of am obsessed with smoothies at the moment. They’re good for you and mostly easy to make. With this new book, Green Smoothies: 66 Recipes & A 7-Day Detox Plan, I have even more excuses to continue the obsession and even more information into different ways to add healthy items to my growing smoothie recipe collection.
As you can see in the pic above, each recipe comes with a small list of ingredients and a short instruction list because let’s be honest here, who doesn’t want a simple and easy recipe! What’s even better? These are all natural ingredients and healthy for you!
Really the only equipment you need is a juicer and/or blender. Throughout the book you will find tips and tricks for juicing and making smoothies and nut milk. There’s even a 7-day detox plan which is perfect for planning for the week ahead, which for me, I personally struggle with this.
If you like minimalistic recipes or even health plans than I would definitely recommend checking this book out.
In the pic above, is one of the smoothie’s I made from the book. It’s a Coconut Kale Smoothie and it was so delicious, especially since I love coconut so much! You can barely taste the kale in it!
Most of the recipes in this book contain 6 or less ingredients, so you won’t be shelling out too much money when buying the ingredients. I put the rest of the smoothie and blender into the fridge and it should keep until tomorrow.
If you’ve never tried smoothies or juices before, I really suggest just trying it because you might like it more than you think you would.
Thanks for reading and let me know in the comments below, have you tried smoothies or juices before and if so, which were your favorites?
